    Does anyone remember Jim Crowe laws, separate facilities based on race? Southern States implemented their control over their future when they came out of Reconstruction and the passing of the 13th, 14th,and 15th Amendments(which Tea Party Judge darling Ellet says were fraudulently passed), to take away former slaves rights through legislation, entrenching second class citizenship on African Americans.
    Yeah, let's give control back to the states, and they will take us back to the 18th century. Recall that the 17th Amendment was passed because the states had a system of implementing the "millionaire's club" method of electing federal senators, which by the way, is worse now due to SCOTUS conservatives giving corporations equal rights as citizens in the form of free speech and , of course as money is free speech, money talks and the corporations are doing a lot of shouting lately.
